there was a terrorist attack on america. and though we suffered a horrific attack, the strength, resilience and extraordinary acts of kindness of the american people showed the world that attempts to destroy our way of life would never succeed. on that day, no one could get in or out of washington, and many communication networks were inoperable. so when the pentagon was hit, and the capitol was evacuated, my staff and i walked one block to my home on capitol hill. just as example, the husband of my office manager worked in the section of the pentagon had been hit, so we were on the phone, the one phone that we had, the hospitals, the police, anyone that we thought might be able to tell us if he was safe. thankfully, he was fine. but there were so many who waited for hours, who called hospitals to hear from their loved ones. sometimes the news was a relief, and sometimes they waited in vain for good news. and i have to say that it was an incredible moment when the senators who could find each other, where ever they had gone from the capital, we finally gathered early -- well, late afternoon

jenna: thanks for joining us, everybody. jon: "america live" starts right now. megyn: fox news alert, the state department moments ago issuing new warnings to the syrian regime as we get reports that that country may be mixing chemical weapons that could be loaded into artillery shells or land-based missiles like these. they would then be fired directly at the syrian people. welcome to "america live," everyone, i'm megyn kelly. western countries, including the united states, are growing increasingly concerned after reports that bashar al assad's forces are actually mixing the chemicals that produce sterin, a manmade nerve agent that can cause convulsions and death and is believed to be one of the agents saddam hussein used back in 1988. most of the images from that attack are so horrifying, we cannot show them to you on television. but this picture shows one victim from that attack, a little boy lying in a hospital bed days after the massacre on his town that left thousands of people dead and many more injured. these are the stakes we're looking at in syria just moments ago the
. they were a recipe for recession. it would "destroy jobs" and undermine america's international competitiveness. obviously since republicans are geniuses that's what happened, right? wrong again. here's what happened in reality. we created 22.7 million jobs, 21% increase in wages. and by the way, they were a million% wrong on the deficit. it balanced the budget. not only balanced the budget, it gave us a $236 billion surplus. how do you like that for results? and that's what happened the last time we raised taxes on the upper bracket. so when they tell you the same old lies this time around, there is absolutely no reason to believe it. in fact, there is overwhelming evidence against it. so undeterred, they of course go on none the less. if you're not convinced let me give you more evidence. look at this chart that i'm going to show you. this is economic growth. in 1991, george h.w. bush does a tax increase. obviously it's going to go down. let's see what happens. >> whoa. >> wait a minute, economic activity and the economy boomed. clinton in 1993 did another tax increase. then i

of america shared in that growth. by making education affordable, by fostering innovation and job creation, and providing economic security to retirees through medicare and social security, our country went from a paralyzing great depression to an economic superpower. we were able to accomplish such a drastic transformation because we were willing to consider revenue as a way to invest in the future, as a way to promise security to our seniors -- economic security to our seniors. focusing spending on policies that work and balancing revenue is at the core of this debate. i've made tough choices in the 1990's that balance the budget, generated a surplus and supported robust job creation. in january of 1993, unemployment stood at 7.3%. in january 2001, that rate had been reduced to 3.9%. that period of record growth also saw an important decline in the poverty rate. in 1993, 15.1% of americans were in poverty. but thanks to job growth and an expanding economy, based upon a balanced approach to deficit reduction, including revenue and targeted reduction in expenditures, poverty fell to 11.3%
